I tried and tried
I tried so many things that wouldn't take
Like stop the leak, prevent the flood, some say
But nothing helped at all

And you're not listening to what I say
You waste the time for memories made
Communication has not made its way to your agenda for today
Or any other day

'Cause this is the last time I'm gonna say it

If you come around here, you know
We're gonna have some problems, though
'Cause yeah, we're over
Get over it, though

I've seen that look before
Leave that shit at your door
'Cause yeah, we're over
Get over it, though

Now I'm shouting out
You gotta hear me
Can you end this now
I'm tired of waiting

You don't get the point
And you don't get control
And we both have a chance
If you just let go

You can't have me tonight, tomorrow night, the next day
For anyone or anything
And anyway, I'm not asking you to stay
You're not my fucking problem, one you just throw away

Let's burn this house we built up down and simply walk away

If you come around here, you know
We're gonna have some problems, though
'Cause yeah, we're over
Get over it, though

I've seen that look before
Leave that shit at your door
'Cause yeah, we're over
Yes, we're over

I'm gonna win this conversation
Look who's got the microphone
I can't believe you're stuck on always trying to fuck me up
Yeah, I think you ruined us all

Yeah, I truly believe you fucking ruined us all

If you come around here, you know
We're gonna have some problems, though
'Cause yeah, we're over
Get over it, though

I've seen that look before
Leave that shit at your door
'Cause yeah, we're over
Yes, we're over

    General CommentHere are the lyrics for The Worry List:

    I'm tired, twisted, barely breathing, buried in the dark
    Don't be concerned, it's just the power of a breaking heart.
    How good am I hiding it?
    Look, I've got some bad intentions.
    Guilty as fucking charged.
    Still standing stable, more than able 'cause I know who you are.
    I know the birthdays, anniversaries, all the first days I missed.
    I regret them all.
    But now I know this:

    I know that God exists.
    I held her in my arms.
    I never knew I was able to ever feel this strong.
    Take me off your worry list.
    It'll be better that way.
    I'm really fine and there's nothing we haven't talked about.
    So, take me off your worry list I said, "Throw it away."
    This is what my life is about.
    I might have been gone but I never walked out.

    I've taken a thousand red eyes to change your point of view.
    What kind of man would take the trust you break and still follow through?
    'Cause I'm standin' right here.
    And you may not show up.
    This same gate 14 where, honestly, I'm just sick of calling your bluff.
    And it's just embarrassing, that I nearly threw up
    And I'm trying hard to change the things I always screw up.
    And at the top of my list, this visitation's no relationship.
    But I gotta make the best of it.
    'Cause I know -

    I know that God exists.
    I held her in my arms.
    I never knew I was able to ever feel this strong.
    Take me off your worry list.
    It'll be better that way.
    And I'm doin' fine and I've got plenty of friends around.
    Take me off your worry list.
    Just throw it away.
    Well, it's time to stand up on my own for her.
    'Cause I'm packing it up, and I'm comin' today.

    I couldn't wait to finally pick my family up.
    Everything is quiet and covered in snow.
    There's something wrong here...
    Nobody's at home.
    Oh, no, no, no, no, no.
    Now, I'm back in the driver's seat.
    Heading back home.
    Yeah, back to Texas on my own.

    Take me off your worry list.
    It'll be better that way.
    And I'm doin' fine and I've got plenty of friends around.
    Take me off your worry list.
    Just throw it away.
    Yeah, it's time to stand up on my own for her.
    I'm packing it up, and I'm comin' today.
    This is what my story's about.
    I might have been gone but I never walked out.
    I'm packin' it up, and I'm comin' today.

    This is what your story's about.
    My pretty little girl, can you figure it out?
    If it helps to know so there is no doubt,
    Just listen to the stories.
    Not everything is glorious.
    Some hurt, some love, some shout.
    I fought the world and I lost that bout.
    And you are what my album's about.
    I might have been gone, but I never walked out.

    Song MeaningThe correct lyrics are to his wife ... telling her to stop worrying about him and that's he fine and he doesn't want her s**t anyway.
    He was gone ... on the road ... when she left him for another man and took their daughter with her. So he was gone, but never walked out of the relationship. She's kept him from seeing Blue (she's in Nebraska, he's in Texas) and played games with it.
    But still, he's fine. Because he knows God exists ... he held her in his arms (his daughter) and she is everything that he is about.
